      • Opening Narration: Although my brother Jim-Bob loved the mountain as much as the rest of us, since childhood he had dreamed of heights beyond its summit. Now, in the spring of 1942, as those dreams appeared to be within his reach, it seemed that he was finding new energy and purpose. If we were disappointed, it was only because Jim-Bob was quietly building to a crisis that would turn his life in a different direction.

      • Closing Narration: Jim-Bob failed English that term, but with Corabeth's help he managed to catch up in summer school. He never did excel in literature, and he never flew for the Air Corps, but he hung on to his dream and one glorious day after the war the airplane that he had built on Walton's Mountain carried him briefly into the sky, and all of us were there to cheer him on.
